I am wondering if anyone can help me on the next step of this mystery. My Grandfather was Victor Merrit Broadbent, His mothers surname was Broadbent so I know he was born out of wed lock and was given his mother maiden name, I can remeber being told that she came from a wealthy family in yorkshire and that the family owned a timber mill, she was disowned for being an unmarried mother later she married a man caleed Nett or Neatt not quite sure and she had a further 11 children. My grandfather was born in Hackney London so Im not sure how she came from Yorkshire to London and I really dont know where to start any help would be greatly appreciated.
